Tips to Get You Ready for  the Cough and Cold Season #HealthySavings #shop

We all know that we need to wash our hands, eat well and get plenty of sleep to stay healthy.  Even though I do those things, I feel like coughs and colds are lurking around every corner and waiting to catch a ride home with me.  You know why I feel that way?  Because no matter what I do, one of my three kids will eventually start to sniffle, cough and in general feel gross sometime during the winter.  I hope for the best but I prepare for what’s usually inevitable.  So, my two most important tips after years of “momming” are: Prepare and Replace…ahead of time.

Prepare for what will most likely happen so you don’t have to run out at the last minute.  That’s the worst isn’t it?  Either you feel awful and are wishing you could just take the medicine while you’re still standing in the drugstore aisle or you’re panicked about getting back home to give it to someone else.  Embarassing scenario?  You have to rush out before you had a chance to get ready and you run into everyone you’ve ever known.  I know that doesn’t just happen to me.  So, plan ahead this year.

Replace all those expired medicines.  It’s not good to take expired things, so don’t do it!

Right now you can save up to $10 on participating Pfizer products at Walgreens with the in-store coupon booklet.  That’s what I did!

Another tip?  Keep your medicine cabinet organized.  I try to go through mine pretty often to make a list of what I need.  It’s easier to figure that out if you group like things together.  If you have wire shelves get plastic containers to hold your medicines and things that might get lost or literally slip though the cracks.  If you don’t have a space to keep your supplies, plastic containers are a great idea.  Just remember to store medicines on top shelves and away from the little ones.

Another little tip?  Buy a few extra items and make little get well packages for people!

  1. Love your tips and that ChapStick idea link is great! I agree, keeping organized is so important. I tend to either have expired products on the shelf (and think I am good to go) or I can’t find the item when I need it! No good. #client

    Thanks for the tips…been there…got sick, expired NyQuil…not a good scene, especially when you are feeling so miserable.
